Marriage isn’t better than singleness. It’s just different. A single is not a second-class citizen who has settled for less than the best. In fact, single people are called to a rich, full life. Consider Paul, a single who took the Gospel of Christ across the known world, had “spiritual” children in every port, effervesced with joy in prison and shipwreck, and grew friendships and churches everywhere he went. His activity wasn’t divided between the mission and a family. Singleness allows time and energy to serve others, lead groups, take mission trips, volunteer, throw parties, study the Bible, pray, or share the Gospel in Honduras or Thailand. A single has room for God-focus and undistracted devotion. If you are feeling lonely and discontent, pining away as a single, lay these emotions at the foot of the cross. A godly perspective adjustment is needed because singleness is—a GIFT. Don’t miss this God-given opportunity to serve and live for Him.
1 Corinthians 7:7-8 NIV
I wish that all of you were as I am. But each of you has your own gift from God; one has this gift, another has that. Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do.
1 Corinthians 7:32-35 NIV
I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs—how he can please the Lord. But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he can please his wife— and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband. I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord.
